    The info you asked for is as follows for the family of Keziah L. Trapp. The parents of the family were Martin Trapp Jr. born about 1780 in Lincoln County, Virginia, died August 1824 in Dover, Lillard County, Missouri. He married Jemima Dodson 11 October 1804 in Pulaski County, Kentucky. Jemima was born in 1785 in Virginia (non Kentucky) and died after 1870 in northwest Missouri.
    After their marriage they moved with their parents near Sparta, White County, Tennessee, leaving there before 1818 and settling near
    Dover, Lillard (now Lafayette) County, Missouri. Where Martin Sr died in 1820 and Martin Jr died in 1824, both are buried in the Dover Cemetery. The Dodson and Garner families also moved from Tennessee to Missouri and settled around Andrew County, Missouri.
    Their children were as follows:
    Sarah Trapp
    b. 27 August 1804 near Sparta, Tennessee and died 12 November 1887 near Philomath, Oregon. She married Perman D. Henderson, on the 25 of December 1821 in Missouri. The marriage is recorded in both Lafayette and Jackson Counties. She is buried in the Henderson Cemetery in Philomath, Oregon. Sarah was blind the last few years of her life. I suspect she may have had cataracts on her eyes.
    Mary Adelaine Trapp
    b. 29 November 1906 near Sparta, Tennessee and died 8 July 1847 in Rushville, Missouri. She married William George Allison on 15 November 1822 in Lillard County, Missouri. William Allison was born in 1803 in Bowling Green, Kentucky and died in 1891 in Rushville, Missouri.
    Nancy Trapp
    b. about 1808 near Sparta, White County, Tennessee and died in 1863 in Platte County, Missouri. She married Abraham Linville on 4 March 1824 in Lafayette County, Missouri. She is reportedly buried in the "Old Campground" Cemetery in Weston, Platte County, Missouri. Abraham was born 8 January 1805 in White County, Tennessee and died 17 August 1875 near Weston, Platte County, Missouri.
    Keziah L. Trapp
    b. about 1812 near Sparta, White County, Tennessee and died in 1850 at Ash Hollow, Ft. Laramie, Wyoming. She Married Charles (Charlie) B. Johnson on 18 October 1827 in Jackson County, Missouri. Keziah is buried along the Oregon Trail in Ash Hollow, Wyoming, there is a wooden marker to mark her burial place. Charlie was married twice and died 12 November 1876 in Corvallis, Benton County, Oregon.
    John Trapp
    b. 1813 in near Sparta, White County, Tennessee and died after 1870 in Los Angeles County, California, after living in Oregon for over twenty years. He married Cynthia Travis on 27 October 1831 in Jackson County, Missouri. John is buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in Los Angeles, California. Cynthia was born about 1810 in Missouri and died in Los Angeles County, California and is also buried in Evergreen Cemetery.
    Mahalia Jane Trapp
    b. about 1814 near Sparta, White County, Tennessee and died about 1854 in Rushville, Buchanan County, Missouri. She married William Nave on the 22 February 1827 in Lexington, Lafayette, Missouri. She is buried in the Armstrong Cemetery in Rushville, Missouri. William was born about 1807 in Tennessee and died after 1865 in Rushville, Missouri.
    Lewis Trapp
    Little is known about this person. I suspect he was born about 1817 in Tennessee or Missouri. No known marriage or death date.
    William R. Trapp (my line)
    b. 22 September 1819 in Dover, Lillard County, Missouri and died 6 January 1879 in Fillmore, Andrew County, Missouri. He married Mary Ann Garner on 18 January 1838 in Lafayette County, Missouri. William was buried in the old Fultz Cemetery in Fillmore and later reburied at his wives side in the Prairie Home IOOF Cemetery in Graham, Nodaway County, Missouri. Mary was born 3 of June 1821 in Ray County, Missouri and died 9 July 1898 in Graham, Nodaway County, Missouri. Their marriage was officiated by William Allison named above as husband of William's sister.
    Martin Billings Trapp
    b. about 1821 near Dover, Lillard County, Missouri and died about 1853 in Oregon (possibly Eugene, Lane County or Benton County). He married first Catherine Jane Bigg on 10 October 1842 in Jackson County, Missouri. He married second Pylena Mulkey on 18 April 1847 in Rushville, Buchanan County, Missouri. Pylena was born about 1827 in Missouri and died before 12 July 1875 (date her mothers will was probated). Pylena married 2nd a Mister Oliver. Pylena's father's name is unknown, mother Nancy, Pylena had at least one brother William J. Mulkey who was born in 1845 in Missouri.
    Docia (Dicy) Ann Trapp
    b. 29 May 1823 near Dover, Lillard County, Missouri and died 3 September 1870 in Rushville, Buchanan County, Missouri. She married John Harrison Allison (brother to William George Allison) on 21 August 1839 in Lafayette County, Missouri. John was born 25 October in Bowling Green, Warren County, Kentucky and died 21 August 1888 in Rushville, Missouri.
    There may be one other brother named Frank but no one has ever been able to find proof.
